APC Mouse Anti-Human IL-3Rα (CD123)
APC Mouse Anti-Human IL-3Rα (CD123)

Multiparameter flow cytometric analysis of IL-3Rα (CD123) expression on human peripheral blood leucocyte populations. Human whole blood was stained with FITC Mouse Anti-Human CD45RO (Cat No. 555492/561887; Bottom Plots) and with either APC Mouse IgG1, κ Isotype Control (Cat No. 550854/555751; Left Plots) or APC Mouse Anti-Human IL-3Rα (CD123) antibody (Cat No. 567275/567276; Right Plots). Erythrocytes were lysed with BD FACS™ Lysing Solution (Cat No. 349202). Upper Plots: Bivariate pseudocolor density plots showing the correlated expression of IL-3Rα (CD123) [or Ig Isotype control staining] versus side light-scatter (SSC-A) signals were derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of intact human leucocytes. Lower Plots: Bivariate pseudocolor density plots showing the correlated expression of IL-3Rα (CD123) [or Ig Isotype control staining] versus CD45RO were derived from gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of intact human lymphocytes. Flow cytometry and data analysis were performed using a BD LSRFortessa™ Cell Analyzer System and FlowJo™ software.

Preparation And Storage

Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze. The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography. The antibody was conjugated to the dye under optimum conditions and unconjugated antibody and free dye were removed.

Recommended Assay Procedures

BD™ CompBeads can be used as surrogates to assess fluorescence spillover (Compensation).  When fluorochrome conjugated antibodies are bound to CompBeads, they have spectral properties very similar to cells.   However, for some fluorochromes there can be small differences in spectral emissions compared to cells, resulting in spillover values that differ when compared to biological controls.  It is strongly recommended that when using a reagent for the first time, users compare the spillover on cells and CompBead to ensure that BD Comp beads are appropriate for your specific cellular application.

Product Notices

  1. This reagent has been pre-diluted for use at the recommended Volume per Test. We typically use 1 × 10^6 cells in a 100-µl experimental sample (a test).
  2. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
  3. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.
  4. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
  5. This APC-conjugated reagent can be used in any flow cytometer equipped with a dye, HeNe, or red diode laser.
  6. For fluorochrome spectra and suitable instrument settings, please refer to our Multicolor Flow Cytometry web page at www.bdbiosciences.com/colors.

6H6

The 6H6 monoclonal antibody specifically recognizes the Interleukin-3 receptor alpha chain (IL-3Ra) which is also known as CD123. IL-3Ra (CD123) is a ~70 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein that is encoded by IL3RA (interleukin 3 receptor subunit alpha) which belongs to the type I cytokine receptor family within the immunoglobulin gene superfamily. This receptor chain consists of an extracellular region that contains an immunoglobulin-like N-terminal domain (NTD) with a fibronectin type III (FnIII) fold followed by two more FnIII domains that form the cytokine receptor module (CRM), a transmembrane region, and an intracellular tail. IL-3Ra (CD123) binds IL-3 specifically and with low affinity. IL-3Ra (CD123) forms a high-affinity signaling receptor for IL-3 (IL-3R) with the ß common chain (ßc; also known as, CD131) that is shared with the heterodimeric IL-5 and granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) receptors. IL-3Ra (CD123) is variably expressed on certain hematopoietic progenitor cells, basophils, eosinophils, mast cells, monocytes, macrophages, dendritic cells, megakaryocytes, and on some B cells, endothelial cells, and leukemia cells. Bound IL-3 can signal through IL-3R to promote the activation, proliferation, differentiation, and viability of these cells. Amongst monoclonal antibodies specific for human IL-3Ra (CD123), the 6H6 and 9F5 antibodies do not block IL-3 binding to the IL-3R whereas the 7G3 antibody does block IL-3 binding to its receptor in a dose-dependent manner.

APC
Allophycocyanin (APC), is part of the BD family of phycobiliprotein dyes. This fluorochrome is a multimeric fluorescent phycobiliprotein with excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 651 nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 660 nm. APC is designed to be excited by the Red (627-640 nm) laser and detected using an optical filter centered near 660 nm (e.g., a 660/20 nm bandpass filter). Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
